identity theftDo you have your date of birth on your Facebook page?  You could be making it easier for a fraudster to steal your identity and your tax refund.  Now the only other thing they need is your social security number, which can be bought from the right people. The IRS should be able to protect us, they have our W2s electronically filed.  The tax season has been delayed for the past several years.  Why don’t they wait a couple more weeks, so they can verify to your W2 that has been sent to them?  Seems like a simple solution to protect Billions of taxpayer dollars.

In 2013, $5.2B was paid in fraudulent tax refunds.  In 3 years, the number of fraudulent tax returns submitted increased threefold.   Want to protect yourself?  File Early!
